Community Educational Training on PrEP April 22nd!
The National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC) will host a community education training on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) this April 22, 2014 from 9am-4:30pm at Washington, DC’s DENIM. We’ll provide the most current and accurate information about PrEP, its efficacy, and how it can be an important tool to help young gay men stay HIV-negative. As new infections continue to rise among young gay men of color, we’ll discuss the unique opportunity PrEP presents for young gay, bisexual, and same-gender loving men. These trainings will also allow participants to engage with PrEP educational videos and cultivate skills to better implement and/or replicate the educational videos for a particular community.
Topics covered in the training include:
- Current landscape of HIV for young gay men
- Biomedical HIV prevention
- PrEP, access, and the Affordable Care Act
- Comprehensive prevention
- PrEP risk and benefits
- Health literacy for both providers and patients
- PrEP and stigma
